Somewhere along the way, we lost.
There’s so much to lose, darling.
You can lose your way. You can lose
time. Spare change. Even love.
I’ve lost before and will lose again.
Sometimes right now, it feels
as though I am drowning.
Still, I know how to swim so
I won’t lose my life, at least
Throughout the day, the light changes,
loses itself to night. And night
has its charms. But
thank god, eventually
night, too, loses as
I sit here in the dark and wait.
